I feel like making a blanket... I have four fairly big balls of pink yarn, so I'm looking to use that for a blanket for Yaya. I haven't found a pattern that I like yet though, so I'm going to make up my own.

I found a stitch pattern called Checks & Ridges which is reversible, has a four row repeat, and looks cozy, so I think it will be perfect. Next I need to decide how many to cast on. I want to use either my 7 or 8 circular needles and my yarn is fairly lightweight, although I will be doubling up. The stitch pattern called for multiples of 4 + 2 and after reviewing other blanket patterns I decided to cast on 170.

So, I'm off to knit, I'll keep you updated :-)
